The oldest working nurse in the United States turned 90 and doesn’t plan on slowing down.
The oldest working nurse in the United States celebrated her 90th birthday this week.
SeeSee Rigney was celebrated by her co-workers at Tacoma General Hospital in Tacoma, Washington where she has worked as an emergency room nurse for nearly 70 years.
In the video, her co-workers are shown greeting Rigney with a celebratory sash, tiara, and a bouquet of flowers. She also received a personal letter from the Washington governor thanking her for her service to the community. The nurse still chooses to work two days a week even after decades of caring for others.
Rigney seemed speechless by the outpouring of support and love. “I thank you all, oh my goodness,” she said with a tearful smile.
